Five Friday Favorites #12

DSC00105-1

I have missed you guys so much and it has been so long I shared my favorites with you all!

So here are my current favorites –

The Body Shop Camomile cleansing butter – this is such a gem of a product! I love it! I have even recommended it to so many of my friends. It cleans skin so perfectly and leaves it feeling soft and hydrated!

MAC retro matte Relentlessly red – my favorite bright lipstick at the moment. It is a perfect mix of red and pink and I love how it brightens up my face. I will definitely do a whole post on this.

Lancome kohl eyeliner – I am such a huge kajal collector! I keep trying new eyeliners every time I see something which promises to last long on my waterline. This one was a very random purchase and it is honestly, one of the best eyeliners I have used on my waterline.

La roche posay effaclar duo – this has been doing an amazing job at keeping my skin balanced and healthy. Highly recommended. This tube is running out fast and me is sad !

Victoria’s Secret xo Victoria rollerball – I was looking for a new fresh scent and did not feel committed enough to buy a full bottle, so I bought a handful of such rollerballs and this one is my current favorite.  It is a gorgeous fresh and vibrant scent, with undertones of roses and even vanilla.

I will try to do individual reviews too and link them here.

What are your current favorites? Do share with me in the comments below!

Happy weekend!

Love you guys,

I didn’t buy a lot of new stuff this month as I had been doing in the previous months. And so, I had a lot of time to use and judge my old stuff. There have also been a few new products which became instant favourites.

I have always loved kohl. And I also keep trying new kohl pencils in search for that perfect one. I had read a lot of reviews before buying this one but was still very hesitant because of the price. But still when I bought it, it was a very impulsive decision. And I don’t regret it a bit. This is truly the best kajal I’ve ever tried!

Helping readers – Kajal query.

Hey everyone!

I’ve got a question from a reader.

She asks,

Hi, im in need 4 a gud kajal. Any suggestions? Maybelline gel eyeliner is gud as kajal?

My suggestion – technically, gel or liquid eyeliners aren’t supposed to be used as kajal, unless they mention they are safe enough. And since, Maybelline gel eyeliner doesn’t mention this, its kindof hit and trial with it. Many of my friends use it with no trouble at all. But whenever I try to use it on my waterline as kajal, my eyes become red. My eyes are sensitive, I also wear contacts. So, if your eyes are sensitive, avoid it.

I prefer pencil form kajals only.

If you want budget friendly options, I will suggest – Maybelline colossal kajal(Rs.150) and lakme eyeconic kajal (Rs. 200) to you. Other options include – Faces eyeliner in Solid Black (Rs.249,I think the price has been increased to Rs.349). You can also check out L’oreal contour khol(Rs.350) which is my favourite.

If you can splurge, try Lakme kohl ultimate (Rs.650). It is amazing.

Read my post on my favourite kajals here.

Readers, you can all give your own suggestions to her. I hope you find your perfect kajal soon 🙂

P.S. Hope this post was helpful. Stay tuned for other readers’ comments. 🙂
